I did have the same problem with my laptop and I fixed it by resoldering the connector. It is not an easy task, mine was a Compaq presario also. If you do decide to do it, you will need to take apart the whole laptop, removing every screw, LCD screen, Keyboard, processor heatsink, motherboard, the whole nine yard.
Don't forget to :

  • remove all the hexagonal screws on each side of the serial/parallel/vga etc... connectors
  • remove the LCD display as soon as you can. that part is actually easy.
  • The keyboard need to come out before you can open the case, there is a few screws under it.
Let me know how it went!

Aspire d150-0Bw dark or blank screen

does the screen has power? even if it has blank/dark screen you can still tell if it has power. if it does try disconnecting and reconnecting its cable but you are going to open the laptop hardware. try cleaning the connector but if it doesnt work i guess you will have to buy a replacement. if it does not have power. you will still do the same thing. the connector could be disconnected.

Hello, I am having problems with my Compaq nx6110 laptop not charging. It is not the battery, as I replaced it at the end of December. The problem seems to be that the charge isn't reaching the battery,...

If you remove the battery, does the AC Adapter power the computer? Does the laptop have a barrel type power connector? I have replaced several power connectors for broken center pin. Does wiggling the power connector affect the charging light?

Mxr phase 90 block logo and the 9v power jack not working

These break and SOMETIMES the circuit board gets cracked.

Open up and inspect for damage. If board is cracked, bridge broken traces by soldering wires around the break.

If the solder is broken, resolder it.

If the connector is damaged or weak spring, replace the connector.

Ac power doesnt work only in battery mode,adaptor output is ok

sounds like the power connector (where you plug into pc) is going bad. try twisting / wiggling connector. pause for a few seconds between twists to give circuitry chance to reconize power input. sometimes there is a green led that will light up when power adaptor is inserted. you can use that as a reference.

Laptop won't charge anymore

Sometimes the dc connector breaks internally and you will not be able to charge laptop. If you have laptop open you can use a multimeter and check to see if there is continuity on the power and ground pins if not then just replace that and you are good to

Power connector of T40 think pad loosen

If you can't charge the battery and you know the battery is good, hook up just the ac adapter to verify that the laptop can turn on without the battery hooked up and if your laptop turns on then you know both are good.

At that point I would say since its not charging then it could be that the dc jack has some bad solder points on the bottom of it and need to be resoldered. Sometimes if the solder goes dry and cracks just a bit if can cause the adapter not to charge the battery.

If that doesnt fix the problem the the motheboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Well, the battery is it's own separate module. The battery most likely will just pop out of the laptop wherever it is.

The AC cord is a power supply ran from a normal household outlet. It also charges the battery. So, you can both charge the battery and run the laptop at the same time. The battery is probably only going to be used on the run anyhow. :) So, you can just use the AC cord whenever you have access to an outlet.

Hi, it seems there is some loose connection in the power supply section. open and find any power connector loose/ fix all connectors gently.

If you can fish the connector out of the white block and it is not broken, you may be able to recrimp to it and pop it back in the original connector.
If you have something staying on all the time, that will kill your battery. Sometimes, it is a trunk light or Brake light staying on. If you had these wires opull out and ground, yes, that will kill your battery.. You may need to get on Ebay and get you a new connectors and or wiring harness for your head unit.
